This center was founded in 2010, as one of the first centers in a multi-disciplinary area including electrical and computer engineering, computer science, and physics and mathematics. Due to its multi-disciplinary nature, the center is privileged to host high quality researchers from different departments and research institutes. The vision for this center is the mitigation of security risks and providing cyber security based on theoretical research on foundations of cryptography and information security through a nationwide effort. The center’s primary mission is the coordination and promotion of cryptographic research by leading the National Master Plan for Development of Cryptographic Science and Technology, with a budget of 100 billion Rials for the period 2016-2019. Ministries of Communications and Information Technology and Science, Research and Technology are supporting the Master Plan.

WebsiteStarting in the year 2000 as one of the first Centers of Excellence (CoE) in the country, the center of excellence for Multi-Access Communication Systems has successfully initiated research in wide areas of communications from fields and waves, to optical and system level designs. Its vision for coming years is to become even more active in fundamental and practical research in key topics such as next generation mobile network development under 5G research platform, covering physical to MAC and network layer initiatives. This center is also privileged to host the top highly-cited researchers and two of the three IEEE Fellows in the whole country. The CoE for Multi-Access Communication Systems was selected as the best CoE in the whole country among all engineering centers in the year 2013, further stressing the level of its research at the national level.
This center consists of the following laboratories:
Optical Multi-Access Systems (Prof. Salehi)
Mobile Communications (Prof. Nasiri)
Signal Processing & Multimedia (Prof. Marvasti)
Communication Systems (Prof. Khalaj)
High Frequency Devices (Prof. Rejaei and Mehrany)

This center was founded in part to respond to the fundamental R&D needs of the Iranian power industry, and to carry out state of the art research on management and control of generation, transmission and distribution of electricity in a classical or restructured power-system and market operation. Another objective is to develop the necessary background to raise collaboration among talented researchers and experts in the field, including graduate students, professors and industrial experts. Finally, the CoE aims to provide technical and advisory services to public and private organizations that are active in the area of operation, planning, design and management of electric power systems with emphasis on Micro grids, Renewable Resources, and smart Grids.

Encouragement and support of young researchers, initiation of research through identification of demands by the national power industry, and synchronization of its position with international developments are among other major goals of this CoE.
